Breeanne Jackson and advisor Dr. Mazeika Sullivan are the lead authors of a chapter in the newly published book, The Ecological Importance of Mixed-Severity Fires: Nature’s Phoenix, co-edited by Dominick DellaSala and Chad Hanson of the John Muir Project.
The chapter, “Stream-Riparian Ecosystems and Mixed- and High-Severity Fire” investigates the diverse array of impacts of wildfire on streams and riparian zones, and sheds light on some of the factors that may mediate wildfire effects. The chapter also explores pre- and post-fire management strategies on stream-riparian ecosystems. Along with Breeanne and Dr. Sullivan, authors include Colden Baxter from Idaho State University, and Rachel Malison at the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research.
Breeanne graduates August 2015 and is currently serving as a resource advisor during fire suppression efforts in Yosemite National Park.
